Riassunto: The Golden Voices of Baseball is a book that's been in the making for some 80 years. In addition to the fascinating sketches and photos of baseball broadcasting legends that veteran author Ted Patterson has compiled, fans will also be able to hear the inside stories about their careers in audio CD form. Included as well will be many of the classic calls these legends made over the last half century. From pioneers such as Graham McNamee, Harold Arlin and Ted Husing, to broadcasting icons such as Mel Allen, Jack Buck and Vin Scully, this compilation of words and voices is destined to become the definitive book about baseball broadcasting history. Besides those that have already been mentioned, the list of 40 featured broadcasters includes Red Barber, Bob Prince, Lindsey Nelson, Russ Hodges, Jimmy Dudley, Jack Brickhouse and Ernie Harwell. Hall of Famer Curt Gowdy contributes the foreword to the book and the introduction to the audio CD.
L'autore: Ted Patterson is a broadcast journalist who has covered the local sports scene since 1973. He was sports director at WBAL radio for six years before joining WMAR television as weekend anchor and later as sports director. As sports director at WPOC radio, he handled morning sports and began the popular "Sports Book" segment. In recent years, Patterson has done Orioles and Ravens reports on WCBM and has hosted the station's Monday night talk show from McCafferty's restaurant in Mt. Washington. He was the voice of Navy football for fourteen years and of the David Robinson-led Navy basketballers, has announced for Morgan State football, and did play-by-play for two Orioles seasons on Super-TV. Since the Ravens came to Baltimore, he has served as ESPN's game-day broadcaster. Patterson has been honored three times as Maryland Sportscaster of the Year, numerous times by the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association, and in 1979 with the prestigious Eclipse Award for his coverage of thoroughbred racing in Maryland. His other books include Baltimore Orioles: Four Decades of Magic and Day by Day in Baltimore Orioles History.
